It would be hard to deny the importance of Byram's excellent book. It is unique, because it views language teaching as a social and political activity and it gives new insights into the topic of foreign language education. The abundance of examples has a double merit in the book because, on the one hand, it helps in better understanding the topic and, on the other hand, it makes the book more interesting to read. Michael Byram's book is a worthwhile read and welcome addition to our body of knowledge on foreign language education. The book is of manageable size and scope and quite accessible to non-experts. At the same time, it is clearly worded, interesting, useful and opens new avenues for future research and study. -- Tunde Bajzat, University of Miskolc, Hungary * Linguist List 20.1850 * I enjoyed reading this book. It promises to be a typically clear and compelling discussion of the institutional implications for adopting an intercultural approach to language teaching in European schools. It deserves to be read and debated widely. -- Professor John Corbett, Department of English, University of Glasgow
